Billy and Mickey are the main reasons to attend these shows. I would be disappointed without a significant drums portion. If nothing else, these shows are about nostalgia and tradition. Drums and Space were a part of every GD show for the last 15 years of the (real) band. It's just plain silly to think they'd drop them.

But there are at least three reasons that space seems interminably long at these shows: 1) No Jerry; 2) They freaking noodle their way into every song, making every song feel like space for at least a few minutes; and 3) No Jerry.
